JR update : ‘wrinkles’ keep appearing on the streets of L.A.

We love updates, and Arrested Motion gave a great update of JR’s latest work around L.A. this week:

from their site: “French street activist and photographer JR is continuing his assault on the walls of LA since starting with a mural in Venice last week.  LA weekly is following his progress in bringing his “Wrinkles of the City” to SoCal on their website  and this is the latest piece at Barracuda in Melrose. This newest project will lead in nicely to the TED prize award show on March 2 (live streaming) where he will reveal his “wish.”Images via Shannon Cotrell & Lord Jim

    Hey would it kill you guys to give credit to the photographers of the shots you’re using?
    Not trying to be prissy but one of the JR shots clearly is from my flickr – http://www.flickr.com/photos/lord-jim/5467377651/in/set-72157625983186613
    the other is by Shannon Cotrell…
    They’re licensed CC anyways, so all you’re being asked is to give a little love to the folks who do the footwork.

    Just a thought.

    Best – Lord Jim

  3. [...] JR is a French conceptual artist who works in the streets hanging massive photos in public spaces.  His art has transcended the streets with shows at Tate Modern and Centre Pompidou.  In 2011 he won a TED prize, and Forbes Magazine has featured him in their 30 Under 30.  At mixingreality.com we love him too, and have written about his work here and here.

    Thanks for your comment. We like to think that true commercialism is profit-based, instead of underground versus mainstream.
    And, while street art has certainly gained some recognition of late, we think that there is always room for artistic discovery no matter where the art is, be it a gallery or subway station wall. So we will continue to share. We hope you do the same.
